Now that we’ve seen the first trailer for Universal Pictures’ The Mummy, we wanted to take a closer look. With that in mind, we have 13 images provided to us by the studio to show off some of the more interesting aspects of the film that have been revealed so far. They don’t give away much in the way of plot, no more than the trailer did anyway, but they do offer up solid looks at the leads as well as their fellow co-stars who didn’t make it into the video marketing just yet.
Starring Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella, Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, Courtney B. Vance and Russell Crowe, Alex Kurtzman‘s The Mummy, written by Jon Spaihts and Christopher McQuarrie, is expected to open June 9, 2017. Be sure to check out Steve Weintraub‘s interview with Kurtzman later this week. In the meantime, you can read up on Cruise’s crazy contribution to the movie’s production and learn more about the studio’s plans for a shared cinematic universe.
Here’s the full synopsis for The Mummy, followed by 13 new images:
Tom Cruise headlines a spectacular, all-new cinematic version of the legend that has fascinated cultures all over the world since the dawn of civilization: The Mummy.
Thought safely entombed in a tomb deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient princess (Sofia Boutella of Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Trek Beyond) whose destiny was unjustly taken from her is awakened in our current day, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia and terrors that defy human comprehension.
From the sweeping sands of the Middle East through hidden labyrinths under modern-day London, The Mummy brings a surprising intensity and balance of wonder and thrills in an imaginative new take that ushers in a new world of gods and monsters.
Cruise is joined by a cast including Annabelle Wallis (upcoming King Arthur, television’s Peaky Blinders), Jake Johnson (Jurassic World), Courtney B. Vance (TV’s American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson) and Oscar® winner Russell Crowe (Gladiator).
The creative team on this action-adventure event is led by director/producer Alex Kurtzman and producer Chris Morgan, who have been instrumental in growing some of the most successful franchises of the past several years—with Kurtzman writing or producing entries in the Transformers, Star Trek and Mission: Impossible series, and Morgan being the narrative engineer of the Fast & Furious saga as it has experienced explosive growth from its third chapter on. Sean Daniel, who produced the most recent Mummy trilogy, produces alongside Kurtzman and Morgan. www.themummy.com
